Having recently completed the annual Christmas Appeal, which includes the provision of large family sized food hampers and toy parcels to those in the community who need it the most, Liverpool charity KIND have welcomed a generous £2,500 donation pledged by Griffiths & Armour and Ecclesiastical. The money will enable disadvantaged children aged six to thirteen in Liverpool to enjoy week-long outdoor learning experiences that they otherwise may not have access to.

Established in 1975, KIND have been making a difference to the lives of thousands of young people and their families across Liverpool helping them to overcome disadvantage and support opportunities to realise their potential. KIND offer essential support to thousands of ‘at risk’ families through dedicated education and family learning programmes which have been proven to have a strong positive impact on children’s lives in four key areas - from building social and emotional capacity and improving achievements to getting and staying healthy and developing supportive relationships with adults.
Griffiths & Armour, believe in supporting the local community and have a long-established relationship with KIND. Carl Evans, Managing Director at Professional Risks said “We’re proud to support our community through the dedicated and valuable work that KIND do for young people and their families and have witnessed the positive impact and long-lasting benefits to society.”
Griffiths & Armour applied for grant funding from Ecclesiastical Insurance Group’s ‘Closer to You’ community programme to be able to boost the support for KIND. This pilot programme gives Griffiths & Armour, who are one of Ecclesiastical’s Select insurance broker partners, chance to be part of its community funding programme which aims to give £100million to good causes.
